Mayim Bialik

Hospitalized in Car Wreck

May Lose Finger

8/15/2012 2:43 PM PDT UPDATED: 8/15/2012 4:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

4:35 PM PT -- 
MAYIM'S FINGERS ARE SAFE ... but they're not entirely functional yet -- the actress just tweeted that she "will keep all my fingers," but admitted her husband had to type the message.

Mayim Bialik
sustained serious injuries in a car accident in Los Angeles this afternoon ... and sources tell us the "Big Bang Theory" actress is in danger of losing her finger.

It all went down on the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and La Brea around noon ... sources tell us the former "Blossom" actress was traveling alone in a white Volvo which was struck in the intersection by another vehicle filled with tourists from Chile.

We're told emergency responders raced to the scene. One source tells us there was "tons and tons of blood everywhere."

Sources tell us Bialik sustained major damage to her left hand ... and "her finger was almost completely severed ... it was just hanging there." 

We're told 36-year-old Mayim was rushed to a nearby hospital where she is being treated.

Seems rather serious for what appears to be a rather mild accident. The only way i can see her having her finger severed is if her hand was out the window while the accident happened.

Hope she pulls through without losing anything, I always liked Mayim's positive upbeat attitude she portrayed as an actress, such as in Beaches or my younger sister's favorite show back in the day, Blossom.

I was there in that area ... it was bad with traffic being diverted all over the place ...

Hollywood and La Brea is a bad corner for hits near hits.

I'm glad she gets to keep all of her fingers. Hope she has a speedy recovery.

Question for TMZ. Why would you refer to her as an actress from a TV series she did 20 years ago instead of referring to the mega-hit series she's on now? Doesn't make much sense.

Hollywood & LaBrea was closed off like it was some major crime scene backing up traffic big time .
